How to UNSEND a Message in Gmail (video shows you how)

My 2-Minute rule in Outlook defers delivery of a message so I have plenty of time to get it from the Outbox, make a change, and resend.

Google recently made it possible for the masses to UNSEND a message in Gmail, and I recorded this quick video to show you how.

Outlook is my preferred email client, and I organize and manage my life with it. For training, call me. I conduct workshops, conference seminars, Webinars, and individual SKYPE sessions. I also have some pre-recorded lessons here.

If You Sell Something, Record a Video to Show Us How to Use It–My CaddyTek and Golf

Peggy Duncan plays golf with CaddyTekI signed up for golf lessons this summer, and am liking it so much, I invested in new clubs, club covers, a stand bag, new shoes and, of course, new outfits. But one thing I didn’t like was struggling with my golf bag when I went to practice on the driving range. I started researching and found a highly-rated, one-click folding 4-wheel golf push cart by CaddyTek.

This thing is solid! Very well-built, and came with very detailed instructions on how to work with it.

But I had a time trying to figure out how to open and close it.

I went to my university, YouTube, looking for a how-to video, and found exactly what I needed. The video I’ve included in this post was recorded by the company that makes it. I had to laugh when I saw how easy everything was as compared to what I was doing with it.

If you’re selling something, consider explaining how to use it with video. It does the work of a thousand photos and totally replaces that booklet. What are you selling or teaching that would be so much easier for us to learn with video?

Thank you so much!”

Painless blogging! One reason you might put off creating a blog or making updates is the technology behind it. Microsoft’s Windows Live Writer is a free, easy, WYSIWYG desktop application you’ll use to create and publish blog posts and pages whether you use WordPress, Blogger, LiveJournal, and TypePad. It syncs with your sites, and you can create posts and pages online or offline at the park.

This training dives deep into this software and its timesaving features for people who would rather do it themselves but don’t know how.

  • Manage multiple blog accounts from one place and publish from your desktop.
  • Insert pictures or simply copy and paste them onto the page.
  • Set default properties once for objects you insert and forget it.
  • Insert videos from your computer or YouTube and other services.
  • Download its own set of plug-ins that make enhancing your posts easy.

Webmasters – You’ll be able to create your client’s blog or Website, direct them to this training, and move on to your next project.

Site Owners – You won’t have to wait or beg anyone to update your site because you’ll be able to easily do this yourself!
